Elizabeth Schnakenberg

Hi! I’m Elizabeth. I grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and have been living in Colorado for almost 9 years. I met my husband in Denver and we have two wonderful daughters. My oldest is 5 and my youngest is 8 months. I am a former preschool teacher turned health insurance broker. I do my best to juggle kid activities, two kitties and our dog and everything in between. I love the outdoors and being close to the mountains. Our family is slowly checking visiting National Parks off our list and hoping to instill a love and respect for nature in our children. I enjoy reading, indulging in Italian food, spending time with friends and family and trying to improve my disc golf skills. I’m looking forward to connecting with more Colorado mamas!
